Two Lovers

Two Lovers ★★★½

What a chilling opening. 
Maybe the problem was with the story but despite the excellent performances, this felt like it didn’t quite carry the emotional punch it could have. Or maybe the problem lies with me. 

Regardless, the performances were excellent, especially the leads in Paltrow & Phoenix. What I found interesting was how at times you rooted for their characters & at times you were very much against the decisions of those characters. And you felt those shifts in their performances. Really excellent work by them & to me their performances were the main aspect that kept me engaged with this movie.
